Your guide to the new bike share program

The City of Biloxi this afternoon launched its new bike sharing program with Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich and others making an inaugural ride through downtown Biloxi.

Two bike sharing stations with five bicycles on each are located in downtown Biloxi, one at the Biloxi Visitors Center and the other at the MGM Park, among the more than seven miles of designated bike lanes. The new program, the first of its kind in Mississippi, is a partnership between the city and the national bike-sharing firm, Zagster.

To ride, users download the Zagster mobile app, chose the location of Biloxi and receive a code to check out a bicycle that has a u-lock, a basket, and front and rear lights for safe riding.  Once the ride is complete, the user returns the bicycle to either location, and clicks end ride on the app.  

“Bike sharing is a great addition to the downtown area,” Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich said. “It enables our many visitors to get out of their hotel rooms and explore Biloxi at a leisurely pace. It also allows residents to do the same.”

Users may chose two membership options, an hourly plan for $3 or an annual membership for $25 which includes rides under one hour to be free.

Information for the program can be found on the Biloxi Bike Share website.
